Finally, an update!

For those of you wondering, yes, we are still alive.

Since our last post at Christmas, Ethan has experienced so many new things! Including sitting in fire trucks, bull dozers, semi's, riding mules, playing in the snow, eating snow, swinging on swings, jumping on trampolines, going to school, eating american food, and so much more!!

We are all doing well. Ethan is the most wonderful child! Just to catch you up, we have been very busy. Ethan has been seeing a specialist about his feet and has since been wearing casts on both legs for the past 5 weeks. He gets a new set every week. The dr. sounds hopeful that we can avoid surgery by doing this casting procedure. Next, he will wear braces for an undetermined amount of time and then he will have a minor surgery to move a tendon in the top of his foot to help with flexibility.

He hasn't let the casts slow him down one bit! I have really bulked up though! He feels like he is 10 pounds heavier with those casts! He still does what he wants to do, it just requires a lot of lifting on our part!

Ethan goes to preschool 4 days a week while I work (in the next room over!). It is only about 13 hours a week, so it is almost perfect! The only downside is that it is an hour from home.

Ethan loves all of his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins and sees them often. He especially likes being outside! He already has a light tan from being outside so much!

Perhaps we'll update again...maybe before Ethan goes to Kindergarten! HA HA

The family picture was taken at Easter...notice Ethan's camoflage casts!
